2010-06-08mac80211: fix deauth before assocJohannes Berg
When we receive a deauthentication frame before having successfully associated, we neither print a message nor abort assocation. The former makes it hard to debug, while the latter later causes a warning in cfg80211 when, as will typically be the case, association timed out. This warning was reported by many, e.g. in https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15981, but I couldn't initially pinpoint it. I verified the fix by hacking hostapd to send a deauth frame instead of an association response.

2010-06-04mac80211: process station blockack action frames from workJohannes Berg
Processing an association response could take a bit of time while we set up the hardware etc. During that time, the AP might already send a blockack request. If this happens very quickly on a fairly slow machine, we can end up processing the blockack request before the association processing has finished. Since the blockack processing cannot sleep right now, we also cannot make it wait in the driver. As a result, sometimes on slow machines the iwlagn driver gets totally confused, and no traffic can pass when the aggregation setup was done before the assoc setup completed. I'm working on a proper fix for this, which involves queuing all blockack category action frames from a work struct, and also allowing the ampdu_action driver callback to sleep, which will generally clean up the code and make things easier. However, this is a very involved and complex change. To fix the problem at hand in a way that can also be backported to stable, I've come up with this patch. Here, I simply process all aggregation action frames from the managed interface skb queue, which means their processing will be serialized with processing the association response, thereby fixing the problem.

2010-05-21net: fix problem in dequeuing from input_pkt_queueTom Herbert
Fix some issues introduced in batch skb dequeuing for input_pkt_queue. The primary issue it that the queue head must be incremented only after a packet has been processed, that is only after __netif_receive_skb has been called. This is needed for the mechanism to prevent OOO packet in RFS. Also when flushing the input_pkt_queue and process_queue, the process queue should be done first to prevent OOO packets. Because the input_pkt_queue has been effectively split into two queues, the calculation of the tail ptr is no longer correct. The correct value would be head+input_pkt_queue->len+process_queue->len. To avoid this calculation we added an explict input_queue_tail in softnet_data. The tail value is simply incremented when queuing to input_pkt_queue.

2010-05-17net: Add netlink support for virtual port management (was iovnl)Scott Feldman
Add new netdev ops ndo_{set|get}_vf_port to allow setting of port-profile on a netdev interface. Extends netlink socket RTM_SETLINK/ RTM_GETLINK with two new sub msgs called IFLA_VF_PORTS and IFLA_PORT_SELF (added to end of IFLA_cmd list). These are both nested atrtibutes using this layout: [IFLA_NUM_VF] [IFLA_VF_PORTS] [IFLA_VF_PORT] [IFLA_PORT_*], ... [IFLA_VF_PORT] [IFLA_PORT_*], ... ... [IFLA_PORT_SELF] [IFLA_PORT_*], ... These attributes are design to be set and get symmetrically. VF_PORTS is a list of VF_PORTs, one for each VF, when dealing with an SR-IOV device. PORT_SELF is for the PF of the SR-IOV device, in case it wants to also have a port-profile, or for the case where the VF==PF, like in enic patch 2/2 of this patch set. A port-profile is used to configure/enable the external switch virtual port backing the netdev interface, not to configure the host-facing side of the netdev. A port-profile is an identifier known to the switch. How port- profiles are installed on the switch or how available port-profiles are made know to the host is outside the scope of this patch. There are two types of port-profiles specs in the netlink msg. The first spec is for 802.1Qbg (pre-)standard, VDP protocol. The second spec is for devices that run a similar protocol as VDP but in firmware, thus hiding the protocol details. In either case, the specs have much in common and makes sense to define the netlink msg as the union of the two specs. For example, both specs have a notition of associating/deassociating a port-profile. And both specs require some information from the hypervisor manager, such as client port instance ID. The general flow is the port-profile is applied to a host netdev interface using RTM_SETLINK, the receiver of the RTM_SETLINK msg communicates with the switch, and the switch virtual port backing the host netdev interface is configured/enabled based on the settings defined by the port-profile. What those settings comprise, and how those settings are managed is again outside the scope of this patch, since this patch only deals with the first step in the flow.

Commit 33ad798c924b4a (tcp: options clean up) introduced a problem if MD5+SACK+timestamps were used in initial SYN message. Some stacks (old linux for example) try to negotiate MD5+SACK+TSTAMP sessions, but since 40 bytes of tcp options space are not enough to store all the bits needed, we chose to disable timestamps in this case. We send a SYN-ACK _without_ timestamp option, but socket has timestamps enabled and all further outgoing messages contain a TS block, all with the initial timestamp of the remote peer. Fix is to really disable timestamps option for the whole session. Reported-by: Bijay Singh <Bijay.Singh@guavus.com> Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2010-05-17net: No dst refcounting in ip_queue_xmit()Eric Dumazet
TCP outgoing packets can avoid two atomic ops, and dirtying of previously higly contended cache line using new refdst infrastructure. Note 1: loopback device excluded because of !IFF_XMIT_DST_RELEASE Note 2: UDP packets dsts are built before ip_queue_xmit().

2010-05-17net: Use ip_route_input_noref() in input pathEric Dumazet
Use ip_route_input_noref() in ip fast path, to avoid two atomic ops per incoming packet. Note: loopback is excluded from this optimization in ip_rcv_finish() Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
